This is the first GroundsPatrol episode i've listened to and I really enjoyed it. The topics you three went through were great, the editing was fluid, and overall it was an easy and enjoyable listening experience. I'm looking forward to hearing the other episodes so far, and for what's to come in the future!

Where's my man Cheshyre ?

Hey, Krinkels actually elaborating on the wonders I pondered in the last episode! :D What an awesome surprise. Much obliged. Thanks for the additional info @Cymbourine too.

I guess what I was really wondering here is who arranges all these exchanges - if there are any coalitions of some sort behind the scenes, groups of fans all spreading this wealth of Madness-related resources, and continually putting out all those tests, or if it's more so just individual people immersing themselves within the culture by their own initiative. There's just so much of it if you skim the general news area. Makes me feel like there must be some layer of organization I'm not aware of, but maybe there isn't. Maybe it's a mutual; individual chaos, and everyone spends a fair share of time tracking down those common splatter sprites and resources that sometimes seem almost conspiratively re-occuring? Are there any shortcuts for new users to get into this kind of culture these days, apart from just plain digging?

Well, anyway, this was a pleasure to listen to. Seems The-Swain in particular could speak for those full eight hours no problem. :) So much insight! Exciting things cooking too. Feels like the richest podcast so far in terms of the wealth of information it contained, and yet it didn't seem as long as it was at all. Time flew. Looking forward to some of that extra material and whatever celebrities are on the show next! Or a few more rounds with these guys. Wouldn't mind that at all.


ahoi there krinkles boi

Really enjoyed this episode. Always loved the madness series and have been excited for Nexus 2 for a while. Plus Swain and Krinkles are just cool ass people to begin with. I am in the discord but it wouldโ€™ve been neat to have heard more of the interview during the episode. I at least donโ€™t mind it being over an hour long! Great episode overall though ๐Ÿ‘
